'Tis the season of holiday giving! Every year we have our Annual Palatine Christmas Shopping Event consisting of four days of festivities for everyone to come out and shop our limited-edition holiday collections at RSVP Style, Stems at The Palatine, and Gianni Fine Jewelers. It's a special time of the year because these are the only days that guests have a chance to win countless free gifts with every purchase! Also, we choose one day of our event where a portion of the sales will benefit an amazing local, non-profit organization. This year, a portion of sales on November 10th from 11am - 7pm will benefit the Saint Agnes Women’s Club supporting the Holy Cross Center for Women!
For 30 years, Saint Agnes Holy Cross Center for Women (HCCW) in downtown Fresno has served as a refuge for homeless and underserved women and their children. Operated by Saint Agnes Medical Center, the center provides daytime shelter, counseling and referral services, education and skills training, clothing, laundry and shower facilities, and social activities. In addition, the center offers six, seven-week long summer programs held for children and young people ages 4-17. Each day, HCCW provides services for an average of 141 women and 19 children. In once month alone, the center provides more than 3,000 articles of clothing, diapers for an average of 227 children, 557 showers, and 239 loads of laundry.
This organization hit home for us because we are a family of mothers, sisters, daughters, and grand daughters. Each of our companies are women owned and operated. We pride ourselves on our businesses and the ability to support the needs of our family and our children. The Holy Cross Center provides the women in our community the means to transform their lives and become self-sufficient as well! We firmly believe in women lifting each other up and the holidays is a beautiful time that everyone deserves to enjoy. ❤
